Apparently a subgenre I love is “books about quirky, lonely older people who find friendship, connection, and purpose in the most unlikely places.” ✨ #MSWL

#MSWL would love a story featuring a septuagenarian or octogenarian group of friends in genres of literary fiction, thriller, women’s fiction, etc but want older protagonists both cute and taking no shit similar to THURSDAY MURDER CLUB

If your book features complex female friendships, secrets resurfacing, and can be comped to Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, I would love to see it!

Also platonic relationships – parents, siblings, friendships. 👯‍♀️ I’m desperate to find a big sweeping novel, something multi-generational like Pachinko or that tracks a relationship through its timeline like Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow.

#MSWL Just binged Arsenal Military Academy (the C-drama) & I'd LOVE to see stories w/similar weird-but-they-REALLY-work, squad goal friendships!

Happy to see romance/fantasy/historical or other genres here! Would love boarding school settings, big friendships/staked adventure!

I also love stories featuring relationships—the good, the bad, and everything in between: friendship and found family, “friend break-up”, complicated family dynamics. And I adore romance (especially LGBTQIA+!), but prefer it as a subplot.

My current #MSWL . I am in particular looking for YA Thrillers, Romance, Boarding School settings, and Graphic Novels. On the Adult side, I'd love to see more Popular Science and Narrative Nonfiction, as well as Romance, and Thrillers...but there is more! 😎

Just found out my sister’s friend founded a women’s North Sea swimming club called Blue Tits.

If someone doesn’t turn that into an alternately humorous and heartbreaking novel about female friendship, I will.

You know what I would love to see for Love Inspired Trade? A tearjerker friendship story in the vein of Beaches. Somebody send me that! #mswl

Oooh, I forgot to add! I'd really love a book set in the 00s or 90s. Probably a classic romcom, but I'd also be open to general women's fiction that was an exploration of friendships and what it meant to be a young woman at that time. Toxic relationships/terrible fashion etc!

I am DYING to find a diverse ensemble cast series that could comp shows like One Tree Hill, The O.C., or 90210 in my inbox.

Super specific #MSWL I know, but damn I loved those shows with their gossip, romance, friendship, and family.

Always for me, characters are key, and there are few better characters than those in women's fiction! Bring me those friendships, those internal conflicts, the complications of being a human woman (a la the BARBIE movie). If there's a twist of some sort, so much the better! #MSWL
